Guyn Is Off The Board; Headed For The A-10

Ge-Lawyn Guyn scrapped his original plan. He's now a committed prospect and headed to the A-10.

Ge-Lawn Guyn's original plan was to go through the July evaluation period as an uncommitted prospect. But after a visit to Charlotte over the weekend for their elite camp, Guyn couldn't hold off.

"He decided he may fit in here better than anywhere else that was looking at him," Guyn's father George said. "We haven't really gotten a chance to talk to him much. He just came up to me and his mom and said ‘I'm about ready to commit' and it kind of shocked us.

"I felt it," Guyn said. "I went and chilled with the players for a little while and we hung out . I loved the campus, the coaching staff and I just thought it was time to go ahead and commit."

The 6-foot-2 shooting guard picked Bobby Lutz's program over interest from a host of other programs. Western Kentucky was strong in the mix, as was Oregon State, Virginia Tech, Indiana, Cincinnati, Dayton, Oklahoma State.

"He came and he looked at their facilities and saw how beautiful there facilities were and I think it kind of over took him," the elder Guyn said. "He liked the coaching staff and basically this gym and everything is kind of mind blowing."

Guyn is Charlotte's first commitment for the 2010 class. Charlotte assistant coach Bobby Kummer was the point man on Guyn's recruitiment.

"Coach Kummer is real cool," Guyn said. "He's real cool and laid back and so is the head coach. They are going to be straight forward with you. I loved the whole coaching staff."

Last season Guyn, who is a three-star prospect, averaged just under 16 points a game for Georgetown (Ky.) Scott County.

"I expected it to be nice, but when I got down there it was nicer than I thought it was going to be," Guyn said. "The A-10 is a good conference and I'll be challenged and I wanted to go somewhere I could play and play against the top competition."
